11th Anniversary - A Day of Gratitude

“A hero is somebody who is selfless, who is generous in spirit, who just tries to give back as much as possible and help people. A hero to me is someone who saves people and who really deeply cares.”

~ Debi Mazar

———————-

Eleven years ago today I received the most amazing gift …. a heart …. from a selfless, generous HERO that really cared.

An incredible team of surgeons, nurses, technicians and countless others saved my life when they transplanted Benny Keith Ward’s heart into my body. And today, they continue to watch over me with love and compassion.

It is a bittersweet, emotional day. It is a day of reflection, of love, of what could have happened versus what did happen.

My thoughts and prayers are filled with love, humility, and gratitude.

It is the day where destiny and fate crossed paths, and God intervened!

Benny Keith Ward, you are and always will be my HERO! May God Bless your soul and your family forever.
